Jeff Bezos says that the National Enquirer argued that it would be in the public interest to publish intimate private photos of him, because they reflect on his judgment as the CEO of Amazon.




Bezos had a snappy response: He personally built Amazon up to become one of the most valuable and important companies in the world. "I will let those results speak for themselves."




Despite Bezos' snappy comeback, it's worth noting that his divorce from wife MacKenzie Bezos does carry some risks for Amazon shareholders — risks that could become exacerbated by this whole dramatic episode.



It's the position of the National Enquirer, it seems, that it would be in the public interest to publish intimate photos of Jeff Bezos — including at least one racy selfie — because they would reflect on his business judgment as CEO of Amazon.
That's according to Bezos himself, in a defiant blog post claiming that the National Enquirer, and its publisher, David Becker, were engaging in "extortion and blackmail" over those photos. To support his claims, Bezos published what appear to be e-mails from lawyers representing the National Enquirer, and its parent company, AMI.
"With millions of Americans having a vested interest in the success of Amazon, of which your client remains founder, chairman, CEO, and president, an exploration of Mr. Bezos’ judgment as reflected by his texts and photos is indeed newsworthy and in the public interest," said one of these e-mails, in part.
